The Danish Maritime Authority is monitoring the situation with COVID-19 carefully in Denmark as well as globally.

First and foremost, all shipping companies, ships and seafarers should follow the advice and guidance from The Danish Health Authority and The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark. All questions concerning risk of infection, diseases, treatment and considerations in relation to travels or port calls are referred to the above-mentioned authorities and to the instructions and directions from the authorities in the country in which the ship calls port.

In addition, the Danish Maritime Authority is available to offer assistance and guidance to ship-owners and seafarers in regard to any unique situation that may arise.
